Cameroon: Hospital SJA Thouret

On the 4th April, in the north of Cameroon, close to Ngaoundal, in  Galagala,   the  Hospital “Saint Jeanne Antide” “opened its shutters”…

 Around thirty years ago, the Sisters of Charity had built in Ngaoundal a health Centre which offered medical assistance to about 15,000 persons … but this dispensary was no longer enough. When particular illnesses arose, the patients had to be carried to another place at a distance of over  100 km.

Therefore, a project has been envisaged and drawn up. But funds were necessary to finance such project, to transport the material from Yaoundé, situation 800 km. away,  to obtain the authorisation from the competent offices for the necessary documents and to discover the essential water sources.   

The realisation of this hospital has been possible with the help of the local authorities, of the people and the many gifts and numerous forms of participation hailing from Italy, France and Switzerland … All this asserts that when we work “together” with perseverance and daring, it becomes possible to accomplish great things and head towards big ideals. Together, it’s possible to believe in a more beautiful and fraternal world, beyond every race and belief.   

 

“On  April 1st ,  all the buildings were blessed … At all costs, the parish priest wanted to bless the entire building, but in a special manner, he wanted to bless the medical personnel who participated in the Eucharistic celebration with many other friends. It was a High Mass because it was so beautiful and animated by a stunning choir who sang joyful songs, accompanied by rhythms and local dances. One could read joy and satisfaction on everyone’s face for this accomplishment and for this big event.  

On April 4th, the daily work kicked off in the new hospital complex … without big celebrations or any official welcome. This will occur later, once the hospital’s organisation will be fully accomplished.   

Everyone will appreciate to keep up to the expectations created by this big work, which is indeed a jewel in a simple and fraternal place that relies always on the stretched hand of acquaintances for sharing in a brotherly and friendly way.”

In Ngaoundal, there is space and generosity for everyone’s expertise. Service is offered especially by DOCTORS who for some time can offer gratuitously their profession at the service of those who are mostly in need.  We particularly consider retired doctors who are still in good shape: their presence and expertise could be highly helpful in the initial phase of this hospital!
